Super Easy Strawberry Shortcake

I grew up with this recipe...
it's one of the fond memories I have of
childhood summers.
It really isn't a "recipe" at all!
It's just the easiest dessert you can make
at this time of year ~ with the best results.

Super YUM!

Bake yourself some biscuits or plain scones.
Whip up some fresh cream ~
I like to add in a bit of sugar and
pure vanilla extract to the cream before whipping it.
Get together a bowl full of fresh strawberries.
Now, put them all together in individual bowls.
Adjust amounts of everything to feed one or two,
or to feed a CROWD!

Whatever you do ~
be prepared to serve second helpings.

Strawberry Shortcake is one of our favorite desserts! That is what we served instead of wedding cake at my youngest daughters wedding reception! Delish! How else would we know it was summer without strawberries and shortcake! And fresh whipped cream! ;~P

Didn't get to strawberry pick this year since it was a tradition with my Grandma and she passed away. But, I must still make strawberry recipes and this one makes me hungry :)

Hello Camille, Your picture looks like I could eat it right off the computer! Beautiful! I love strawberries and whip cream on scones! Last night we had 4 of our grandchildren. Poppa went to the store and bought ice cream, bananas, fresh strawberries. Also all the sauces for banana splits. It was a nummy treat.

Our family was invited to go pic apricots tonight. We have so many in our kitchen. I will be busy freezing them tomorrow. We love them in our smoothies.

Enjoyed my stay here tonight. You and your sweetie are sooo cute!

Blessings, Linda
